Legal Education and Uniform Laws Group

Who We Are

This group differs from other RPTE groups in that it surveys activities and information across the entire spectrum of property topics, rather than focusing on specific substantive areas. The group consists of the Legal Education and Uniform Laws committees. One of the group’s primary activities is Professors’ Corner, a free monthly webinar (on the second Wednesday of every month) which features a panel of law professors discussing recent cases or issues of interest to real estate or trust and estate practitioners and scholars.
